CBD OIL & PAIN

Posted by Heidi Dillard on

Doggos are known for stoically hiding their pain, so we don’t always know when they’re suffering. As an owner, you begin to realize the indicators that your pup is in pain.  Conventional methods to treat pain often involve synthetic medications.

If you are looking for an all-natural way of treating your 4-legged friend’s pain without the risk of side effects, you might consider looking into CBD oil or treats. Here’s what you need to know.


Tell Me About This CBD Oil

CBD is a type of compound called a cannabinoid. It’s found in cannabis, and it’s one of the main reasons cannabis is often used for medicinal purposes. 

While marijuana and hemp both have CBD, CBD oil from hemp is preferred because CBD from hemp has less than .3% THC so an intoxicating effect is avoided.

CBD that is isolated and extracted from the plant is a compound that interacts with a body’s endocannabinoid system to bring about numerous health benefits.

And What About The Endocannabinoid System?

Most mammals all have something called an endocannabinoid system that manages the body’s immune responses and keeps all systems in perfect balance. 

Receptors are located everywhere including the brain, nervous system, certain glands, and in organ tissue. When the receptors are activated, communication begins and signals specific reactions that include anti-inflammatory and pain-killing effects.

CBD targets those receptors to initiate communication and therefore a proper immune response to treat a number of ailments. In the case of chronic pain, CBD prompts the endocannabinoid system to block pain signals from the brain. The underlying cause of the pain is usually still there but the aching, irritation, inflammation, and soreness is treated with CBD

Can CBD Really Help With Various Types of Pain?

Surgery

If you’ve ever laughed to yourself when the vet says, “keep them calm for 2-4 weeks”, you know that most doggos want to be up and moving as soon as possible. CBD oil can help by speeding up recovering from surgery without the side effects you might see from conventional pain medications. 

Injury & Joint Pain

Rest is the best and fastest way for a pup to recover from an injury like a broken leg, abrasions or other injuries. The same properties that help ease canine anxiety are used to keep dogs relaxed during the healing process. The calming effect of CBD helps them rest and also will trigger an immune response to speed up healing.

Acute Pancreatitis & Intestinal Inflammation

Acute pancreatitis is an inflammation in the pancreas that comes with lack of appetite, vomiting, and debilitating abdominal pain. CBD oil helps send a signal that starts the appropriate immune response to deal with the problem and bring the dog much-needed relief and restore normal gut function.
